What Are Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries?
Motorcyclists can suffer a wide range of injuries that affect nearly every part of the body. Some of the most common injuries sustained in motorcycle accidents include:
- Broken/fractured bones
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Internal injuries
- Road rash
Each of these injuries could lead to serious complications and long-term consequences. That’s why it is so crucial that you fight for every dollar of compensation you deserve with the help of a lawyer at McKiggan Hebert.
Who is Liable For My Motorcycle Accident Injuries?
All motor vehicles including motorcycles are required to have auto insurance. Every auto policy has “Section B” no-fault coverage. This provides up to $50,000 for medical expenses and $250 per week for lost income. Injured motorists and their passengers are covered by the Section B no-fault policy no matter who is at fault, but Section B benefits do not fully compensate injured accident victims. Additional compensation can only be attained if you are able to prove that the defendant is liable for your injuries from the motorcycle accident. This means you will need to prove that the motorcycle accident occurred as a result of the defendant’s negligence.
Negligence can take on many different forms. Some examples of negligent driving that can lead to a motorcycle accident include:
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Driving while distracted, for example, using the phone or talking to others in or outside of the car
- Failing to comply with traffic laws
- Failing to use the proper turn signals
- Driving aggressively
- Suddenly swerving into your lane
- Misjudging the distance or speed of your motorcycle
Our lawyers will immediately begin to investigate how the accident occurred so we can establish liability or who’s at fault. We will interview witnesses, review evidence from the scene, work with expert witnesses to reconstruct the accident, and evaluate your medical records to gather the evidence we need to prove liability. Then, we will begin to aggressively pursue compensation on your behalf.
The more evidence we can find, the better your chances are of obtaining the compensation you deserve. Let our skilled lawyers help you hold the at-fault party financially responsible for your injuries.
What Factors Will Impact the Value of My Motorcycle Accident Case?
Many injured motorcyclists are eager to know the value of their claim, but this is a difficult question to answer. The value of your motorcycle accident claim can vary depending on a number of factors. Some of the questions that will need to be answered to calculate the value of your motorcycle injury claim include:
- How severe are your injuries?
- How were your injuries treated?
- Will you need additional medical treatment in the future?
- Have your injuries affected your ability to work now or in the future? If so, how much income have you lost? How much income are you expected to lose?
- How have your injuries affected your daily life? Have your injuries reduced the quality of your life?
- Have you experienced mental or physical pain as a result of your injuries?
- How long did it take to fully recover from your injuries?
- Are there any long-term effects of your injuries? If so, what are they?
Every motorcycle accident claim is unique, which is why it’s impossible to estimate the value of a claim without knowing about the facts of your individual case, and a lot more.
